What we do on Sundays

Worship at Good Samaritan is liturgical, which means it follows particular patterns found in our prayer book, The Book of Common Prayer. It is grounded in ancient tradition and expressed in a contemporary context. Our liturgy is creative and life-giving, seeking always to equip us for renewed and joyful living. Don’t worry if you have never experienced liturgical worship. We will give you everything you need to fully and comfortably participate. All you need to do is show up!
 
Services at Good Samaritan include music, readings from the Bible, prayers that we say together as a community, a short sermon in which we connect the readings from the Bible to our daily lives, and Communion (or Eucharist), our shared sacramental meal. Music at Good Samaritan is led by our choir, which leads us in diverse musical selections—everything from ancient hymns to contemporary worship songs.
 

From June 23-September 1, 2019, there is only one service at 9:30 am.

Childcare is available for children under the age of 4 starting at 9:15 am.
 

8:00 am Service (September-June)

Our 8:00 am service is ideal for those who desire a shorter and more contemplative service. The service includes spoken prayers with no music and typically lasts around 40 minutes.
 

10:30 am Service (September-June)

Our 10:30 am service is the larger of our two services. It offers music led by the Good Samaritan choir. People of all ages and at all stages of life find a place at this service. While this service provides space for contemplation, it is noticeably livelier than our 8:00 am service and often includes a number of families with young children.
 

Sunday Formation

At 9:15 am on Sundays during the program year (September-June), we offer formation programs for adults, youth, and children.
